Our Mission Statement

"To create and maintain a safe and healthy environment where through Pack Leadership, dogs are happy, comfortable and enjoy their visit

In order to allow owners the confidence to relax when their best friends are with us knowing their canines are receiving premium care"

Kinder Kennels has a special relationship with CFB Trenton. Members of the Canadian Forces who are temporarily unable to fulfill their military duties are able to come and spend time helping at Kinder Kennels. This mutually beneficial relationship allows dogs to have even more love and extends a hand into the Military community.
